I'm a vet – the three things you should never give your dog and why rope toys are a big no | The Sun

IF you have a pet, chances are you've done your research and know a lot about your specific breed.

But according to one vet, there are three things that nobody knows…

Dr Tori, who is from the US, took to TikTok and shared an informative video where she reveals the products she advises all pet owners should avoid at the pet store – and they may just surprise you.

First up on the list are big bones.

In the clip, she holds up an example and explains: "Bones like this – any antlers or ham bones – these can cause GI (Gastrointestinal ) upset and can also fracture your dog's teeth.

Next up, Dr Tori says: "Please do not feed your pet grain-free diets unless they have a known allergy to grain which is actually very rare.

"They can be fun for your dog but when they have all these extra threads at the end, your pet can eat them and it can cause an intestinal obstruction," she warns.

"Also if you have any old toys at home that are becoming unravelled, definitely throw those out."
